Antique Desk Chair Refinish

Antique Desk Chair Refinish

Hi Friends, and Happy Wednesday! Today we have a lovely new REDO to share with all of you! We recently repaired/refinished this FABULOUS antique desk chair for equally FABULOUS Mrs. Angie! She is updating her little office nook in her home, and was looking for a new office chair with a little character for her space. And when she ran across this beauty, SHE COULDN’T RESIST (And who could really blame her?)….

Up-Cycled Nightstands for the Colona Family

Up-Cycled Nightstands for the Colona Family

Hi friends, and happy Friday! We recently had to opportunity to work on another awesome project with the Colona family! This time, Nicole found a set of doors for $10! (WHAT A STEAL) She brought them to us, along with their nightstands, and asked that we do a little up-cycling on them!

She had the FUN IDEA to attach the doors vertically onto the backs of each nightstand, and then once we refinished them, they would add sconce lighting to the tops of each!Continue reading

From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we have a very special up-cycle to share with all of you! We recently had the pleasure of working with the Jenkin’s family who brought us a Headboard and Armoire that had lots of water damage after being SUBMERGED in several feet of FLOOD WATER. Typically, most people would throw these types of items out and simply purchase new ones, but this set belonged to their grandmother and she was absolutely heartbroken over the loss of her beloved bedroom set. So, they brought us the pieces without her knowing, and asked that we try to salvage as much as we could and turn them into a BRAND NEW PIECE!Continue reading

Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we sharing a stunning repair/refinish of a GORGEOUS Duncan Phyfe dining table that we recently refinished for the McBrayer family. Mrs. McBrayer initially contacted us because their dining room table was almost unusable due to the poor condition of the legs and feet, and was in disparate need of a little TLC. They were splitting and separating because of the age of the table. You see, this beauty was a family heirloom that Mrs. McBrayer’s grandmother passed down to her. So, she was not planning on getting rid of it any time soon. This meant that it was imperative that it was fixed as soon as possible before the extent of the damage WORSENED.

We began by fully stripping, sanding, and cleaning the entire table. Once we had that completed, we were able to get to work on our repairs. This part was the most TEDIOUS because we had to be extremely GENTLE because the wood was very DELICATE while CAUTIOUSLY removed the legs and all of the old glue. Also several legs were broken, and the pillar holding each was cracked and separating as well. Continue reading

Bedroom Set Refinish for the Arceneaux Family

Bedroom Set Refinish for the Arceneaux Family

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! Today we are sharing a recent bedroom set refinish that we completed for the wonderful Arceneaux family! They have held on to this beautiful set for over 20 YEARS! And since their are building a new home, and plan on bringing this set with them, it was time to SPRUCE IT UP A BIT!

Since the tops were still in nice condition, they asked that we simply refinish the bottoms. And as for the paint color, they chose a gorgeous color called Linen. This is actually the same color that we used on another bedroom set that we recently refinished for the Mire family. It is the PERFECT shade of “Off White.” Not too dark, and not too light.

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Hi Friends! With our school year coming to a close, we thought we would share some of the CHANGES and UPGRADES that we have made to our space over the past 8 months! We feel that our space will probably be one that is every-changing as we continue our homeschooling journey, but for the time being we are very pleased with how much we have accomplished this school year.

Since this was our very first year of homeschooling, we kind of JUMPED in with both feet forward. We didn’t know exactly what would work best for us, and fully expected this to be a year of TRIALS and ERRORS. This would be our year of really learning what would work best for our family, and what we were going to have to tweak and change a bit before getting into our groove.Continue reading

Scrap Pile Project: Hall Tree

Scrap Pile Project: Hall Tree

Happy Thursday, Friends! One of our most favorite things to do around here is Up-cycling. In this case, we reused some old scraps, paint, stain, and hardware from old project that had been piling up in our shop. We absolutely LOVE to save all of our usable scraps for future projects, especially when they can be re-purposed into something NEW! Why waste if we don’t have to?

So, we got to work gathering all of our scraps that would have otherwise been BURNED or THROWN AWAY. We were even able to pull together a few decorative pieces that we purchased over the years…. but never found the right use for them… UNTIL NOW! They may have not seemed like much at the time, but once put together, they became a MASTERPIECE!Continue reading
